It's Time for Christmas in August at Paper Sundaes!

Good Morning! I hope you are having a great weekend. I'm working this weekend, but I still have time to share my DT card for Paper Sundaes with you! It's a Christmas theme at Paper Sundaes this week and our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp!

I used this beautiful Hero Arts Hanging Christmas Ornaments image that you can find at Simon Says! I used my copics in the traditional Christmas colors and then made them shine like glass by topping them with Glossy Accents! See the picture below for the effect! Pretty shiny, huh! Then I traced the hangers and bows with a gold gel pen and added a dab of Stickles in Xmas Red to the dots to make them sparkle too. I didn't want the ornaments hanging from thin air, so I added some sparkly sheer organdy ribbon tied into a double loop bow and some rich red velvet ribbon for them to hang from.

I love this sentiment and it's very typical font mixed with a fancy cursive font. The dp and cardstock are all edged in green or red ink. I used a Maya Road trinket pin to add some more sparkle, but I covered the silver bling on top with a dab of Champagne Stickles to keep the gold theme going. Then, I added a little red pearl to finish it off! I really hope you like it! Now go take a look at what the other Design Team members have to share with you at the Paper Sundaes Challenge...I'm sure you will love the eye candy!
